SCANDAL: Obama 2012 Campaign Steals Slogan From MSNBC of all Places
Despite some successes, President Obama still faces a rough reelection campaign. His 2008 slogan, “Change”, won’t work on the jaded masses now. Fortunately, they have crafted a new slogan designed to keep Obama in the Oval Office.
At first, Forward seems good. It’s simple, chantable, and hashtag-able, all of which are required in modern politics. “I Like Ike” never would have trended on Twitter, mostly because Twitter didn’t exist then.
Anyway, the big news here is that the Obama campaign finally admits it is in the pocket of third or fourth rated cable news channel, MSNBC.
The resemblance is uncanny. Either the Obama campaign clearly decided to steal from MSNBC in hopes of catching the prison TV show viewer demographic, which could be critical to his reelection efforts, or the campaign likes the idea and was sure it would be fresh to America at-large since nobody watches MSNBC.
Time will only tell if MSNBC reacts to this blatant creative theft. I expect Rachel Maddow to “ether” the Obama campaign tonight on her show.
